Officers located shell casings from three different firearms behind the residence and located Jeffrey Emil Tillman, 40, who admitted to shooting the firearms.

Officers seized a Bushmaster .223 rifle, a Para Ordnance .45 caliber handgun, and a Sar Arms 9mm handgun. They also seized ammunition and approximately five grams of marijuana.

Tillman was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm by convicted felon, discharging a firearm in the city limits, and possession of marijuana. Tillman later posted a bond of $25,000 at the Davidson County Jail.

Officers were called to the same residence around 2 a.m. Saturday, just a little over 24 hours later in reference to an assault.

The victim told police she had just posted bond for her husband, Jeffrey Tillman, and when he arrived home, they argued about what happened the day he was arrested.

The victim said Tillman assaulted her by punching her in the face.

She fled to a neighbor’s house and Tillman was arrested.

He was denied bond and was placed under a 48 hour hold for the domestic assault charge. On Monday, he was given a $1,000 bail and released.
